Rahul Arun
PhD Student (G3)
Graduate Aerospace Laboratories, Caltech

I am a 3rd year PhD student and an NDSEG fellow at GALCIT, advised by Professor Tim Colonius in the Computational and Data-Driven Fluid Dynamics group. I received my M.S. in Aeronautics (2022) and my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with an Aerospace minor (2021) at Caltech.

I develop techniques to model, predict, and control turbulent flows by blending theoretical, numerical, and experimental approaches. Feel free to check out my bio, research summaries, publications, and a photo gallery of my dog.
